Barbara Brickner: C.J. Banks
It's been a long time since C.J. Banks ventured out of the studio for one of its campaigns, which is a shame, as it used to shoot some of the loveliest outdoor promotions in the industry.
Therefore, it's nice to see a new shoot from the company in a lovely, natural setting. Here's the site's current cover image, showing Barbara in a beautiful, rustic environment.
The greenery is so rich and lush, glowing emerald in the sunlight. I love the detail of the watering can -- such an idyllic touch.
Another great element -- the weathered picket fence in the background.
These locations don't just make the images more appealing. They help the clothing stand out too. Here, the purple outfit richly contrasts with the green backdrop.
Even the structure in this setting is rustic, and harmonizes with the environment.
The ivy growing on the walls helps it to blend harmoniously into the surroundings.
Barbara herself is, of course, as gorgeous as ever.
Window on the world.
A few indoor shots as well, for good measure. Even these are superior to a studio setting.
Kudos to C.J.Banks for selecting the gorgeous Barbara Brickner to model in this campaign, and for shooting her in such a pretty location.
It's a reminder that plus-size marques used to produce campaigns that were just as beautiful and artistic as magazine editorials. I hope this promotion might herald the return of such attractive shoots.
